Dive into clear turquoise water and swim among exotic schools of fish. Regular encounters with Sharks & large Rays are possible and there is a wealth of macro life to keep any diver or snorkeler fascinated for hours. Post dive, we will return to the ALEXA and prepare for a delicious freshly caught fish dinner. Tonight we will sail to the island of Lembata.
